We currently have funding for a Center Grant in Environmental Health Sciences and a Superfund Program Project grant from NIH. Many members of our department are also members of the Environmental and Molecular Carcinogenesis program of the NCI funded cancer center. Research programs include Epidemiology, Biostatistics, Exposure Assessment and Health Effects, Molecular Toxicology/Carcinogenesis and Pulmonary Toxicology.
The mission of our Community Outreach and Education Program (COEP) is to help the public understand more about environmental health issues and to reduce misconceptions about toxic chemicals in our air, water, and inside our homes. Once accurately informed, individuals can make better decisions regarding prevention and unintentional exposures. Our site also reaches out to students who are interested in getting more involved in environmental health science by participating in some of our “Science in Action” student programs and laboratory mentoring initiatives.
